Press Association's royal correspondent, Alan Jones, was allowed to interview the royal couple, and he admitted that there was "nervous tension" before the couple and their new bundle of joy entered Saint George's Hall in Windsor.


First-Time parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduced their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world recently. The family of three were a little late arriving at the photocall, as reported by Hello!.


"I knew that this was a proud dad and proud mom and they'd be quite happy to do it, no problem."

Alan, professionally known as Tony, said: "So it was a real case of, not quite a cold sweat, but it was definitely gulping and slightly sweaty palms moment."

"We sort of stayed in that frozen moment, as it were, just waiting for them," he added. "And we were waiting and waiting and waiting and then eventually we got the nod from their head of press that they were coming."


For Alan, the stand-out moment of the interview was the touching way the Duchess of Sussex talked about her husband and child.

"It's probably her first few words from Meghan when she said something along the lines of about having 'my guys.' Just the phrase 'my guys'... it's very touching," he said.

"It brought it all home how, in a few hours, her life has changed, and now she's a family of three, and she's got two people that will mean the world to her. And it was just very touching to see that and for her to tell us about it," Alan added.


The journalist revealed that he asked the Duke of Sussex if the press could get a more precise look at the infant during the photocall, and the prince was very glad to do it.

"I knew that this was a proud dad and proud mom and they'd be quite happy to do it, no problem," Alan said.

The reporter also stated that Harry and Meghan couldn't take their eyes off the baby for long.


"As I was talking to them they were answering the questions but then glancing down at their son, so it was almost as if they were trying to talk to him," he shared. "And he was oblivious to all this, asleep in their arms, but they were sort of joining him in the conversation as it were, between the four of us in a way, because the son was there asleep."

Harry and Meghan welcomed baby Archie on May 6. The new royal, who was born at 5.26am and weighed 7lbs 3oz, is seventh in line to the throne. As the son of a Duke, Archie's title is expected to be Earl of Dumbarton.
